The blouse is always a wardrobe staple, especially for work, but this season it feels a little bit different. It's loose-fitting, sometimes sheer, in new colors and a modern cut. And how you wear it matters to keep things looking fresh: Nikki Reed does the full-tuck with skinny jeans and heels, Giuliana Rancic does the half-tuck with skinny jeans and heels, while Maria Sharapova gets creative with a printed blouse, bright pants and a blazer (looks very fashion blogger, no?)
Here, five stylish blouses in stores now to help you get the look:
1. Mossimo for Target, $22.99
Every time I go to Target, I debate whether or not I should buy one of these blouses. They look great and come in a bunch of right-now colors. The polyester is a turn off but you can't beat the price.
2. Old Navy Striped Blouse, $29.94
I splurged on this shirt and don't regret it. Reminds me of a J.Crew shirt, you know the one.
3. Tinley Road Silk Blouse, $79
If you're looking for real silk, Piperlime.com has this lovely shirt in 7 tempting fall hues.
4. LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Blouse, $33
Always bringing the latest trends to her Kohl's line, Lauren Conrad nails it with this (and many other) chic shirt options for fall.
5. The Limited Houndstooth Shirt, $49.90
Paired with oxblood pants and a black blazer, this houndstooth blouse would look sharp for day or night.
Are you embracing the new blouse look this fall? How are you wearing it?
